This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:

I personally gained a lot from the tenses sections. This is due to fact that as a native speaker I rarely even think about tenses as we use them naturally in our daily speech. Due to this, I think that I sometimes forget how difficult these can be for non-native speakers, especially for those students who speak chinese (they never have to worry about tenses, in the same sense as english speakers do, in their native tongue).
The section on reported speech also gave me a good reminder of how difficult english can be, even when you have spoken it your entire life.
Due to this course, I have gained some valuable knowledge regarding how to break down various tenses and grammar points. By integrating them with my current favored teaching methods, I believe that my classes will be broken down much more to an even lower base level. Then built upon steadily. I think in the past I was definitely guilty of being over ambitious in my expectations.
Additionally the teacher resources will be an invaluable aid in providing the students with a more varied learning experience as well as keeping the classes fresher for me.
